One low point: learning that my sister’s aide quit and that her long time case worker has assigned my sister to someone else.

One balancing point: reading the words, “we refrain from protecting them from the consequences of their actions.”

Three high points: party goer who has been studying racial inequity for twenty years saying, “and that’s why I enjoy your blog so much,” then walking home from Solstice gathering in the rain feeling oh so grounded and grateful and finally, an hour later, K returning from China.

          The social worker’s job is to shield people from their worst inclinations, to the extent possible.

    Damn! But you are very balanced. I quit helping a long time friend almost a year a go when sh became unbearably destructive. Al-anon had sage advice. We can not always help. Meanwhile, your Moon in Rain is a wonderful shot.

    Such a great photo, with that ‘small’ looking structure captured in the bottom quadrant, its lights all ablaze, looking both far away and welcoming at the same time. A timely quote indeed. xo

      Hi Deb. Sometimes the simplest things are the best. I guess that’s something we ought to understand by the time we hit our 60’s.


Love to hear what you think!
